The choice of time T for zeroing an initial disturbance with minimum-fuel consumption influences the dependence of the switching instances on the phase variables. For a set of discrete values of time T this relation can be found easily and mechanized in a simple manner. The restriction of the free choice of time T is so mild that it does not impair the usefulness of the scheme.
